By the way, the person who is conducting this T20 series for the blind is one Mr. Mahantesh. A blind man himself, runs a charity organization, that's well known across the country.

I have had the pleasure of meeting him once. Amazing person. So much honesty, so much zeal, so humble, so assertive.

Good that we don't have Taliban to keep killing our Heroes.
